Skill-Building for Social Justice: El Puente

Friday, December 1, 2017 at 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm

El Puente 211 South 4th Street, Brooklyn NY

Join us for a special training with El Puente, a community human rights institution in South Williamsburg that promotes intergenerational leadership for peace and justice through the arts, education, scientific research, wellness, and environmental action. Participants will explore El Puente's Transformative Community Building Framework and will walk away with a clear model & methodology and ideas for acting on their own vision based on the needs and desires of their organization and/or community. Attendees will learn about this methodology through some of El Puente's core issues: intergenerational relationship building, environmental justice and sustainability, and gentrification in New York City. 

This workshop is part of Lang Civic Engagement & Social Justice's Skill-building for Social Justice series, which partners with social justice organizations and activists across New York City to introduce New School community members to frameworks, methodologies, and practices they can implement in their own lives. 

NOTE: We will leave as a group from 65 West 11th Street at 1:15pm. To attend this workshop, prior registration is required at this link:

Presented by Lang Civic Engagement & Social Justice and El Puente.
